February 26 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm EST

From Community Control to Semilingualism: The Ideological Architecture of Whiteness as Property in Bilingual Education Policy

Nelson Flores received his Ph.D. in Urban Education from the Graduate Center of the City associate professor one educational linguistics at the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education. His research examines the intersection of language, race and the political economy of shaping US educational policies and practices. He analyzes the historical origins of raciolinguistic ideologies that have framed the language practices of radicalized communities as inherently deficient and in need of remediation. He also analyzes the ways that these raciolinguistic ideologies continue to be reproduced within contemporary bilingual education policies and practices.
